Proudly Proudly


When a jackal's present,
A lion's never too far away
Near enough to assure
Near enough to pity the savage.

(Pity, they've earned it by their repeated denials of responsibility...)

It is a pity when we can scribe a story worth repeating or put crutches and a sling on the old stories and parade them about proudly without a lick of reason...
